This course is for women who are interested in mastering basic programming fundamentals and a career change into software engineering. Our students have come from various professional backgrounds with these commonalities:
The prep course helped me get a taste of and decide on the full-time immersive fellowship. The entire team was so amazing and accommodating and made me feel like I have all the support I need to take a step forward in changing careers.
I learned like crazy in the Full-Time Prep course at Hackbright! It was intense but extremely useful in both determining my aptitude for coding, and preparing me for a full-time study course. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to find out if this is the career choice for them.
This exclusive one-week accelerated prep course is offered at $250 total (entire $250 will be applied to a full-time fellowship course if you decide to enroll after prep). Because of this limited-time, low cost, seats will sell out, so we encourage early sign-up.
Why do you teach Python in this course instead of other languages?
This is the language used in the full-time Fellowship. The reason Hackbright focuses on Python is because its simplicity lets students focus on fundamental programming concepts instead of having to deal with unnecessary (and hard to look at) language syntax common to many other languages. It’s a great professional language that you can build on and it’s used by top companies.
How is this course different from the Hackbright Prep part-time course?
The greatest difference is time and cost. Our goal with full-time accelerated prep program is to give women a faster option if they’re ready to make the commitment to becoming a software engineer but just need to increase their technical experience and knowledge.
How does Hackbright Prep prepare me for Hackbright Academy’s Full-Time Fellowship?
Hackbright Accelerated Prep full-time course will fulfill the 40-hour coding requirement for the Fellowship. This class will give you a solid foundation in Python. The reasons for laying a strong foundation in coding before applying to the Fellowship are twofold: The first reason is that it is important for you to know you love to code before you commit to doing it all day, every day. The second reason is that it allows you to have the skills you need to apply to the Fellowship and take the coding challenge. You’ll feel more prepared and ready to take on this new career change.
